How to Save 70% with the New Adobe CC Student/Teacher Editions

Get the New Adobe CC 2019 Student & Teacher Edition Now (Try or Buy)

Let’s face it, Adobe’s traditional product prices seemed expensive over the years, espe­cially if you’re on a student’s budget. The last perpetual version available, Creative Suite 6 from 2012, historically had full prices ranging from $399 for Dream­weaver through $999 for Photoshop Extended and on up to $2,599 upfront for the Master Collection suite, which contained all CS6 applications. As cool and powerful as this software was, it’s hard to afford when you’re in school – even after the student/teacher discount.

Adobe eventually stopped selling CS6, as the version reached EOL and end of support – but fortunately the company still offers deep discounts for education customers on the latest CC release. A few years ago, in fact, they increased the discount on Creative Cloud to up to 70% off the regular prices. And while there are a lot of misconceptions about CC, the main products like Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere, etc., still download and run on your desktop as normal.

How to Exchange, Return, or Refund Adobe Software Products

‘Tis the season for holiday deals, but it can also be the season for order changes or returns… Although naturally, this can happen at any time of year.

Sometimes even despite using Adobe’s free trial downloads to try out the software before buying, customers may want to exchange something and get a different Adobe product instead – say swapping Lightroom 6 for the CC Photography bundle, or returning an individual CC tool and getting the full CC 2019 suite instead (which includes 21 applications instead of one).

See Adobe's Complete Refund & Return Policies

So did you know that Adobe offers a full money-back guarantee on almost all current products? This includes Creative Cloud (CC), Acrobat, Lightroom, Captivate, Photoshop Elements, and so on. This offer applies even after you’ve already downloaded and installed the product on your computer(s) – however, only software purchased directly from Adobe.com worldwide can take advantage of this refund policy (not resellers, retailers, or auction sites).

Yes, it’s true – you can simply contact Adobe within 14 days of your order for subscription products, or 30 days of your order for non-subscription products – via live online chat is usually fast and convenient. Then, provided you follow the correct procedure, they will take it back (after being uninstalled and deactivated from your computers, if applicable) and issue you a complete refund.

Download Full Documentation & eBook Manuals: All Adobe Products

Even years after it went up, a lot of people still don’t know about it.

We’re talking about the free online documentation for all Adobe software – a set of user manuals that can answer quite a few customer questions, and also be a great resource if you don’t use a product yet but want to find out more about it…

Read or Download the Free Adobe Photoshop Manual (PDF, 900+ Pages)

This exists in searchable and downloadable form for all major Adobe applications, including the Creative Cloud, Creative Suite, Lightroom, Acrobat, Photoshop Elements, etc. – for all recent releases on both Windows and macOS.

For example, every so often we receive a question on how to save back to earlier versions from InDesign CC or CS6… Fortunately, this is answered in the “Saving Documents” section in InDesign’s online manual. (And for all the cases like these, we also put together a special roadmap for CC file compatibility.)

Each Adobe reference below can be downloaded as a complete offline ebook if you want (more about this below)… These books are substantial – the latest “Photoshop Help & Tutorials” hand­book is almost 1,000 pages alone!

This morning, Adobe unveiled the new CC 2019 Release, which the company says is the biggest product launch since they first introduced Creative Cloud over six years ago. Pam Clark, Senior Director for Photoshop, exclaimed, “Today is by far the largest product announcement and launch experience of my career on the Photoshop team, and at Adobe. We have never delivered so much amazing new innovation to customers on the same day. I can’t wait to see what you create!”

And from what we’ve seen, it looks to be true. There are major updates across the entire suite of tools and services, including entirely new Creative Cloud tools as well as significant new features and improvements to existing applications, and even some surprises.

Here's How Adobe Stock Boosts Productivity by 10X

Ask any creative about the favorite part of their job, and it’s unlikely someone will answer “the mundane tasks.” Things like adapting a single element across hundreds (if not thousands) of assets, or going through the pains of re-working a previewed stock photo after attaining the license. And yet, those same tasks are all-too-often a habitual part of what creatives still do today – and something Adobe has worked to streamline through the capabilities in and the tight integration of Adobe Stock and Creative Cloud Libraries.
